JEBUS those are big boards!!! I'm curious to see what you think of the Prior, if for what ever reason my Virus deal doesn't go through, I might look at one of those Prior Freeride boards...
Ah, i was watching Apple presentation =)
I got this Prior used, i believe this is 2008-2010 model. Like 3-4 years old and it makes some difference.
Anyway, both, Prior and Donek feels really solid.
I haven't touched any WC boards, but i think i'd try this season.
When it comes to details, Donek looks more interesting to me. It got more interesting shape, prior quite "classic". Donek looks like Prior BX, i think. I'd post more shots without packaging, when get my board from service and put my bindings on.
Also guy in service told me, that donek sidewalls are really good. They're like 90 degree. Not like 70-80 degree as on regular boards. He told me that it's used on a higher-end and race skis models. By the way, donek have 28cm waist
May be this is because Prior is 3-4 years model, and Donek is the latest one.
I'm really looking forward to compare this, as Donek looks so much promising to me. There's bigger taper on donek, and VSR (10.5-12.5). Prior have single radius. 10.5m. Taper - 12-15mm on Donek, 4mm on Prior.
Prior is all mountain alpine mode. I was riding hardboots for 1st year and it looks like fun! It'd quite different and very interesting to me. Have nothing to compare, but prior holds edge way better, then any softboot board(i heven't tried donek though). It feels really solid, definitely better build that my Neversummer board.
heh.. too much words, i think it's better to discuss all the shapes in another topic. or in PM =)
And i can tell that i got this board quite cheap.
